Having suffered for many years and tried other manipulative treatments, I eventually sought help from my GP who referred me to Dr Kazzaz. This was the best thing that could have happened to me as the treatment I received from Dr.Kazzaz was excellent. The treatment was some 8 months ago and I have been pain free ever since. I cannot thank him and the NHS enough.

I was absolutely happy with the treatment offered by Mr Kazzaz. From the first consultation which was 2 years before a final operation, Mr Kazzaz was both knowledgeable and considerate of my condition. The preliminary treatment of my condition was always given at a conservative pace and only proceeded to a significant operation when absolutely necessary. When surgery was warranted I was well informed as to the risks and the prognosis for a recovery. The operation proved to be more complicated than originally planned, but Mr Kazzaz demonstrated considerable skill and dedication and has achieved both immediate post operative benefit as well as long term.

At my first consultation with Mr Kazzaz, he spun his computer monitor around towards me to demonstrate the results of MRI scans, and explained clearly what and where was the source of my mobility problems. He described a number of ways in which he could resolve the issues, and we agreed upon an early but limited intervention that might or might not solve the problem. This limited intervention provided limited, temporary relief, and we agreed upon a maximalist intervention which Mr Kazzaz performed some months later. In advance, he spelled out in detail the risks associated with the procedure; given the scale of discomfort I decided nevertheless to proceed. The procedure was successful, although during the immediate early recovery period, I suffered considerable pain and discomfort. Mr Kazzaz checked upon me regularly and I was immensely reassured by him that the pain and discomfort would subside. This proved to be absolutely correct and within a small number of weeks I was able to revert to walking 4-5 miles per day, something I had not been able to do for more than a year. I told Mr Kazzaz he had a future as a magician!

He always had time for my questions and was happy to explain anything I didn't understand. I was more than happy with the final outcome after my back operation and would highly recommend Dr Kazzaz in the future. Thank you again for sorting out my back issues.

A fantastic patient experience for me under Dr Kazzaz. Not only was the surgery successful but was initially extremely well explained (including any potential risks) but was carried out reassuringly which ensured a quick and effective recovery. His guidance and support was 10 out of 10, further supplemented by his PA Vanda Evans who as part of the overall experience ensured all went smooth as can be. I truly could not be any happier. I rarely write reviews, but for the treatment provided by Dr Kazzaz it was impossible for me not to do so. Thanks again. My quality of life is back on track......

This procedure had been a long drawn out process, causing me a great deal of discomfort. However the explanation i received throughout my consultations with Dr Kazzaz was first rate, always asking and answering my questions and exploring every avenue of treatment before surgery as a last resort. Once i had got to the surgery stage, the procedure was explained in great detail along with both options for my particular circumstances, there was a bit of a wait before the actual surgery but the team kept me updated all the way through. When i arrived for the surgery, again everything was explained before i went down, i was extremely well looked after before, during and post op, including my post op review which i have just had.

After a diagnosis of a prolapsed cervical disc, I was referred to Dr. Kazzaz for consultation and treatment. Appointments came quickly and after targetted injections failed disc replacement surgery was scheduled. During both outpatient and inpatient experiences, I found him very knowledgable and he explained the procedure and risks in great detail. His confidence in the procedure is evidenced by my absence of pain and unrestricted neck movement. Very grateful and would highly recommend him to anyone with similar issues.

Mr Kazzaz has done a fantastic job, over several months, dealing with my chronic back pain. He quickly organised scans and reviews, but also listened to me, as the patient. How I described and defined the pain was used by Mr Kazzaz over and above scans alone, and he provided surgery which had overnight results. Life has returned to normal as a result! I'm incredibly grateful.

A very big thank you for the way Mr Kazzaz looked after our daughter. I know it is strange for the Mother of a 35 year old to leave a review! I wanted Mr Kazzaz to know that he has completely changed my daughter's life - she had surgery where the disc in her back was trimmed. She was asked to lose weight and she has now lost 1.5 stone but more importantly, she has changed her attitude to food and is planning on getting to her target. When we visited Mr Kazzaz in outpatients and he gave her the exact support she needed to push her boundaries - we have been swimming twice a week and she is now going on her own. The thing that made the big difference for her was knowing that she had that 'SOS pass' and that she was confident that she would have Mr Kazzaz's full support if she tried the right things and they did not work. I just wanted Mr Kazzaz to be aware that providing such support made such a huge differnce and we cannot thank him enough.

I wanted to thank Mr Kazzaz very much for his expertise and skills. The proof of his expertise and skills is in the fact that I was fully fit in 8 days. My Parachute Field Ambulance comrades who underwent similar procedures took 6-8 weeks to reach full fitness. Our problems in the Parachute Filed Ambulance that came to haunt us in later life was parachuting with very heavy loads over many years. I've had two total replacement knees and partial replacement right shoulder. I must also mention my gratitude to Mr Kazzaz's Departmental Secretary for her prompt response to my request to find me a surgeon who could do the job. She definitely made the right choice!.
